Aramex now has an iPhone/iPad application for their Shop and Ship service that allows you track your packages. It tells you what’s in your inbox, shows you when it ships and how much it’s going to cost. Basically everything you needed to log onto their website to know. Very convenient.

I haven’t posted in a while for many reasons, first Eid holiday which we spend in Lebanon, then immediately after that we started uni, and we’re literally swamped with readings and assignments from the first week! Anyways, Lebanon was amazing to say the least, I have tons of photos to share in the next few posts, hopefully!

I just wanted to share this lovely Eid gift that I received from my sweetest friend, Aljoud Lootah, the owner and designer behind Niftee.

Contains bukhoor made by her lovely grandmother, AMAZING!

A sweet note that came along with it. ♥

If you don’t know Niftee, then you’re seriously missing out on some gorgeous Arabesque tees, shawls & clothing items that are TDF. And did I say she’s the sweetest person EVER?

Thank you so much, Aljoud, for the gift! I absolutely love it.

Check out Niftee‘s Website, Twitter & Facebook page.

I was reading Samaher‘s blog the other day, and I noticed she had some really cute shoes, from Milano of all places! I don’t normally give Milano a second glance, because I find their collection kind of..not my cup of tea. However, I was at Villaggio yesterday and thought I’d pop in and see if there’s anything I liked. I was actually surprised with some of the pieces they had.

R, picked a pair of these colorful sandals, I tried them on, they’re SO comfortable and right on the color-blocking trend. I might go back and get me a pair.

Available at Milano stores for QR 205.
